Please Help ID - Taking Over My Yard

Grancru(z5 MI)June 4, 2014

THis plant is taking over my lawn and flower beds. Anyone know what it is and how to kill it? It has a spiderweb of fiberous roots that break off if you try to pull out.

Help Please

I'm guessing epipactis helleborine, helleborine orchid. See link for control suggestions (but it appears there's no surefire method).
